“In fact, Alberta is the richest province in the country, and one of the richest jurisdictions in the world. Our GDP per capita in 2009, after the global economic crisis, was still $24,740 higher than the Canadian average – $67,339 compared with $42,599.
Yet Alberta’s expenditure per capita is on par with or marginally greater than that of the other provinces. We have the money to dramatically increase post-secondary funding. Why shouldn’t we take advantage of that?”
